1. Color it

This is where your liquid gel food coloring comes in! If you can't get liquid gel food coloring, you can use regular liquid food coloring, but it's much harder to manipulate. The same thing goes for gel food coloring.

You'll need yellow, blue, pink, and green food coloring. Inside your clear plastic cup, place a dot of pink food coloring about an inch from the bottom, on the side of the cup. Do the same thing on the opposite side of the cup. Repeat this with the blue food coloring in between the pink dots on each side.

With your yellow and green food coloring, add yellow and green dots in the same places as the pink and blue but an inch from the lip of the cup.

2. Spread Your Color

Take your long handle spoon and spread each color with the back of the spoon. Don't mix your colors together, just move each color so they're almost touching.

3. Make the Drink

Blend together your frappe mix, milk, and ice. Pour it into your pre-decorated cup.

4. Perfect the Colors

Once you've poured in your drink, your colors are bound to move slightly. Use your spoon to move the colors around your clear plastic cup. This is when you can really make it the design you want.

5. Top it

Once you've perfected your clear plastic cup, top it with whipped cream and rainbow sprinkles!

This drink is perfect for kids and adults alike! It's bright, colorful, and delicious.
